The DuPage Derby Dames will be visiting the Oak Park Public Library to talk with kids about what it takes to play roller derby! The Dames will bring literature to life as they meet with young fans of the book Roller Girl by Victoria Jamieson and answer questions about roller derby. Roller Girl is a New York Times best-selling tale of 12-year-old Astrid, who learns about friendship and empowerment through the amazing sport of roller derby. Following the discussion, the Dames will skate in an outdoor derby demo on the plaza (weather permitting).
